Governments are packed with perverts

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden recently told The Guardian reporters NSA agents pass around naked pictures of people they spy on, like you. WebProNews provided the full quote:

“The reality of working in the intelligence community is that you see things that are deeply troubling – all the time. And it’s not just one person, it’s many of them.

“You’ve got young enlisted guys, 18 to 22 years old, they’ve suddenly been thrust into a position of extraordinary responsibility where they now have access to all of your private records. Now, in the course of their daily work, they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work in any sort of necessary sense.

“For example, an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation but they’re extremely attractive. So what do they do? They turn around in their chair and they show their coworker. And their coworker says ‘oh hey, that’s great – send that to Bill down the way.’

“And then Bill sends it to George, and George sends it to Tom, and sooner or later this person’s whole life has been seen by all of these other people.

“It’s never reported, nobody ever knows about it because the auditing of these systems is incredibly weak. The fact that your private images, records of your private life, records of your intimate moments, have been taken from your private communications from the intended recipient and given to the government without any specific authorization, without any specific need, is itself a violation of your rights.”

Generally being a pro-government propagandist organ, The Guardian called this claim startling, but there’s nothing startling about it. If we had a dime for every time a politician or bureaucrat is caught using government’s power of coercion for sex, they would have to pay us money instead of stealing ours. It’s not surprising people who are attracted to using government’s power of coercion over others to advance their personal interests, i.e. everybody in government, do it not only to advance their financial interests, but their sexual interests as well. This is the real reason police departments like Dayton’s push so hard for spy cameras in every window and drones in every backyard.

The affinity for prostitutes by U.S troops and Secret Service agents has been documented to be nearly insatiable, but hiring prostitutes isn’t the problem. The use of coercion by government agents to get their sexual jollies damages their victims.

For example, 30 strippers have filed a lawsuit against San Diego police for abusing their power to license strippers. The Los Angeles Times documented, “The strippers were ‘nearly nude’ when their pictures were taken while officers made ‘arrogant and demeaning remarks’ and intimidated the strippers to keep them from leaving, the lawsuit alleges.”

As bad as this sounds, the response from the police makes it worse. The Times continued, “Taking photographs of the employees, including [photos] of distinctive tattoos, is a routine part of the inspection process, [police spokesman] Mayer added. Inspections are meant to deter the employees from engaging in illegal acts.

“‘The San Diego code mandates we make these inspections,’ Mayer said. ‘This is not a criminal matter, this is a regulatory matter.’”

The police contend this sexual abuse is legal, and they have a case. It remains to be seen how strong of a case. The Times continued, “[The lawyer for the strippers] said while the permit process does allow such inspections, police went overboard, detaining the dancers for more than an hour against their will ‘without probable cause’ and making them pose in various positions.”

This highlights the perverted conflicts government creates. In a free society, nobody could force these women to pose for photographs against their will. But, because the government claims the power of coercion, it legalizes sexual abuse, and the perverted enforcers it hires to carry out the abuse go beyond the law to satisfy their own perverse desires.

The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) is another government bureaucracy that legally sexally assaults victims, and their legalized crimes invite more of the same. CBS reported, “A San Francisco man suspected of having one too many drinks is accused of posing as a Transportation Security Administration agent and groped [sic] two unsuspecting women, both foreigners, in a private booth for security pat downs.”

What’s the difference who employs the molesters or if the victims are foreigners? The women are victims of molestation, regardless. The TSA is a haven for molesters because it allows them to get their jollies legally, and this guy just short-circuited the hiring process. This incident shows TSA has nothing to do with security, only oppression. Agents, probably drunk themselves, can’t protect travelers from a guy in their midst, let alone a determined terrorist. TSA agents have never stopped a terrorist attack, and they constantly fail to detect weapons during tests, but they molest travelers with glee.

It’s sad how people promote government power out of fear from sexual assailants and other criminals, but they’re empowering criminals to commit their crimes without consequence as government agents.
